Bermuda Shorts And Kimonos With Balenciaga First Bag

Starting to share some outfits on the blog featuring some of the gorgeous new pieces I got for Christmas at last. With today's post I'm sharing a new silk kimono, as well as some new Bermuda shorts and a pretty silver necklace. Simple outfits for hot summer days.


What I wore:

Balenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India with red tee and kimono | away from blue



JacketLocal Women's Handicrafts gold and burgundy silk kimono
Necklace: thrifted pearl and heart charm long necklace
Tee: Jeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta
Shorts: thrifted Emerson white Bermuda shorts
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India


Why I wore it:

This outfit came together so nicely! I wanted to try a bit of matchy-matchy with a red tee to compliment the burgundy in the mixed paisley print of the silk kimono I got from my mother in law. While I do have darker red and even burgundy tees, I thought this lighter red would work nicely, although it's a different shade, and I really liked the way this turned out! Added a pretty layered gold necklace to match the gold in the kimono print too. While I do have quite a kimono collection, this is the first silk one I've owned! It was nice for a humid day, running between activities with a post-surgery appointment for my son in the morning, a catch-up with a friend and belated exchange of Christmas presents in the afternoon, and then karate lessons after dinner. The Adidas superstar are so comfortable, and like the white Bermuda shorts are a lucky opshop find. Perfect for all the running around we did.

With all the matchy-matchy to the kimono I thought a bit of contrast would be fun too so I wore this pretty turquoise Balenciaga first bag.






What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Eliza summer poncho in yellow floral
Necklace: Kmart silver long circle pendant necklace
Tank: Jeanswest 'Josie' striped back strap tank
Shorts: Jeanswest Heather Bermuda short in black
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagBalenciaga first bag in 2006 Blue India


Why I wore it:

These are officially called the "Heather Bermuda shorts" at Jeanswest but they look so cute (if a little shorter) with the hem rolled up so they are not quite Bermuda length on me! Perfect length for the day though. We headed out for a walk along our favourite trail in the morning, before it got too hot and humid. It did heat up so quickly though so we ended up spending over an hour in the library afterwards. I sat relaxing in the aircon and we picked out some new books for us all, while apparently almost an hour playing the computer in the kid's area "wasn't long enough" for my son 😂

I'm so glad we got to pick up a few new books at the library that day as a couple of days later they announced a 3 day lockdown for Brisbane. With the new books and still some not yet played with toys from Christmas we kept the boys busy at home until the lockdown was lifted at the end of the 3 days.

I've tried print mixing with this striped tank in the past, with mixed results. But I really liked this combination with the white and navy stripes and the bright yellow printed kimono. It was such a nice combination with the turquoise Balenciaga first bag too. I didn't want to over-accessorise with the heat and humidity so this silver circle necklace I got for Christmas was perfect, as were the studded sandals.

How You Can Wear It:


Casual Bermuda shorts are great mum-essentials in the summer heat! Long enough to not have to worry while running around with the kids or attending appointments, in classic black or white they will be wardrobe staples. It's so easy to change it up each time you wear them too by adding a fun printed kimono on top - a nice bit of physical sun coverage when you're outdoors too!

Colourful V-Neck Tees, Striped Maxi Skirts and Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Two similar outfits for some very different days the week before Christmas! Colourful v-neck tees with striped maxi skirts, sneakers, statement necklaces and my Louis Vuitton damier azur Neverfull tote.


What I wore:

vertical stripe maxi skirt with purple tee Adidas superstar, Louis vuitton neverfull | away from blue

vertical stripe maxi skirt and Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | away from blue



Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in washed lilac
Skirt: thrifted SES Fashions vertical stripe maxi skirt
Shoesthrifted Adidas Superstar sneakers
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Why I wore it:

This was not a fun and relaxing December day. Baby Boy had to go into hospital for more surgery, so I loaded up this big Louis Vuitton neverfull tote bag with things to keep him comfortable and entertained (as well as a big Woolies green bag with more essentials for a hospital stay) and we headed into the city.

I wore a similar outfit last time he had surgery, it was a little easier this time knowing a bit more of what to expect, and not having as long of a stay as we did back in December 4 years ago. I wore comfortable pieces, with this vertical striped maxi skirt not having been worn in a while and very easy to wash. The purple tee is one that's starting to show its age, although still wearable, so I knew it would be comfortable and I wouldn't be too distraught if it got blood on it that didn't wash off. Even the necklace is fully washable! Thankfully this time around the recovery was a bit easier and less messy. I think knowing what to expect and him being a little older really helped.

A massive thank you to all the staff at the Mater too, from the surgeon to the anaesthetist to all the nurses, they made our stay as nice as possible and being able to call with questions even on a December weekend once we were back home as he recovered more was much appreciated. And I don't take for granted the blessing of being able to be home for Christmas.






What I wore:

orange tee with navy stripe maxi skirt statement necklace LV neverfull tote damier azur | away from the blue

orange and navy tee and maxi skirt outfit with Louis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull | away from the blue



Necklace: thrifted blue statement beaded necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Skirt: Target navy side split maxi skirt
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull


Why I wore it:

This was a happier day! I took the kids out around our favourite trail that morning, trying to beat the rain and the humidity, just to get them out of the house. After a very stormy and wet week they hadn't been able to play much in the back yard so scooting and biking around a short little trail was a nice break, and thankfully Baby Boy was well enough. Even if the humidity was crazy by the time we got out of the door and we did get a little wet in the car park when it started to rain as we left!

Afterwards we went to check out the Christmas window displays at a local shopping centre, as well as pick up a little treat for morning tea and then back home. Just a short time out as Baby Boy wasn't up to too much, but it was good to get out the house.

Surprisingly I hadn't worn this marigold tee with the navy striped maxi skirt before! I have worn a mustard tee with this skirt before and liked the combination, the orange looks good with it too. Kept it comfortable for the little walk with my New Balance sneakers and tried to dress the outfit up a little with this thrifted statement necklace. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull was probably not the best choice with the impending storm and rain, but it was easy to throw everything into like snacks and water bottles and we didn't get too wet.


Last wornmarigold tee, blue statement necklace, navy stripe maxi skirt, New Balance sneakers, Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull (above).



How You Can Wear It:

A striped maxi skirt is a great basic piece to have in your wardrobe and pairs so well with another staple basic, a colourful v-neck tee. It makes for an easy outfit for mum life, whatever the day has in store!

Striped Tee Dresses With Pink and Purple Accessories: Balenciaga Bags and High Tops

Two incredibly similar outfits following an almost identical outfit formula. Striped tee dresses like these are perfect for spring, especially when you add bright accessories like purple high tops, Balenciaga bags and an extra touch of pink.

What I wore:

alexander mcqueen skull scarf pink with purple balenciaga work bag navy white stripe long sleeve tee dress and high tops | awayfromblue

white navy stripe tee dress with Balenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag | away from the blue

awayfromblue Instagram | long sleeve striped tee dress with navy white stripes purple accessories high tops balenciaga work bag


ScarfAlexander McQueen pink pashmina in skull and floral print
Dress: thrifted Kmart white and navy long sleeve stripe tee dress
ShoesPurple high top Converse look-a-likes
BagBalenciaga raisin purple 2009 giant silver G21 hardware work bag

Why I wore it:

Wore this to take the kids out to the movies! Movie theatres have been open for a while when the restrictions lifted but we haven't really felt the need to go. We haven't been big movie goers since having kids, so it wasn't like we felt we were missing out when things were closed. My sister scored us free family tickets to a Paw Patrol movie though, so we decided to take advantage and take the kids out to their first movie of the year. The last one we saw at the movies together was Frozen 2!

While it was a warm spring day I knew it would be cold in the cinema so I took the opportunity to wear this long sleeved tee dress I thrifted a few weeks ago. Added more colour to it with the purple high top shoes and Balenciaga work bag. Even though the shades of purple are very different I thought they looked good together. The pink skull scarf was another way to add even more colour and picked again for extra warmth in the cinema.

It was a really fun morning out and I'm glad we went - even if the kids were getting annoyed with how frequently I was getting them to sanitise their hands!





What I wore:

black and white striped tee dress with contrast sleeves and pink and purple accessories high tops balenciaga city | away from blue

ShoesPurple high top Converse look-a-likes
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs pearl, howlite and hematite beaded bracelets
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet 

Why I wore it:

This was another fun day! Had a rather boring morning of errands and getting my tax done, but I got to spend the afternoon with my sister who stayed for dinner with us.

This striped tee dress is actually one from my sister's wardrobe, I gained it in one of her wardrobe clear-outs luckily! With the neutral black and white stripes I used accessories again to add more colour, with the purple high tops (also from my sister's wardrobe clear-out... ) and a touch of pink with the marble necklace and Balenciaga sorbet city bag.

I've shared 30 ways to wear this pink Balenciaga city bag before and wearing it with black is a combination I've worn heavily over the 10 years I've had it. It just pops so well! I really liked this outfit. Perfect for such a hot day too.

Other ways to wearblack striped tee dress and brown bag, purple high tops and maxi skirt, sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag worn 30 ways.

How You Can Wear It:

A stripe tee dress is a good basic to have in your wardrobe, especially in neutral colours. You can change it up each time you wear it with brightly coloured accessories. Add more colours with shoes, bags, and scarves or necklaces depending on the weather.

30 Ways To Wear: Dark Grey V-Neck Tee

Time for another 30 ways to wear post! Every month I pick something from my wardrobe I've worn 30 times or more and create a new post in this monthly series showing you some of the ways I've worn it. I hope to inspire you to think of more ways to rewear the pieces you own in your wardrobe, as I was inspired when I first heard of the 30 wears challenge in The True Cost documentary.

This month, it's this dark grey v-neck tee in charcoal. It was one of the pieces I first thought of back when I started this series, as I was sure I would have worn it 30 times, but I've only just managed to hit that figure this year, and that's with some pretty frequent rewearing recently. Still, if I had to pick, I'd say this is my favourite grey tee.


30 Ways To Wear: Dark Grey V-Neck Tee



30 ways to wear a dark grey tee #30wears away from the blue blog wardrobe remix



Cost Per Wear


I bought this tee back in July 2013! Thanks to my order email from The Iconic I know it was a $30 tee reduced to $12 in the sale and then I had an extra discount voucher for my order so it worked out to just $9.48. At 30 wears to date that's 32 cents a wear. Pretty good cost per wear I think! Obviously, having this tee pre-kids and during my pregnancies and now after having my kids, it doesn't fit quite the same as it used to 7 years ago! However it is still super soft, stretchy and although it's maybe not quite as slouchy a fit as it was before I love how comfortable it is. I plan to wear this until it falls apart.

The other, lighter, grey tee I bought in the same order I've already done a 30 wears post on too. It was a good sale shop back then as I still have 3 of the 4 things I ordered and I've now hit 30 wears on 2 of them!

I think the reason it's taken me 7 years to reach 30 wears with this tee was a combination of not wanting baby spit up on my fave tee when the kids were younger, along with the habit I'm trying to stop of "saving" pieces in my wardrobe and feeling they are too good to wear on ordinary days. I've been really enjoying wearing this tee so much recently, in an effort to finally hit 30 wears with it and acknowledge its awesomeness in a post! So let's see the ways I've worn it!



Dark Grey Tee in Monochrome Outfits


5 monochrome outfit ideas with a dark grey tee | away from the blue blog

I find true monochrome outfits really tricky to do, as I can never resist adding a little pop of colour with an accessory! I do like wearing this grey tee with other shades of grey and black for a monochrome look - before I start adding colourful pieces on top!


Dark Grey Tee In Layered Winter Outfits


3 ways to wear Dark Grey Tee In Layered Winter Outfits | away from blue

This darker grey tee layers so well in winter - it's a neutral shade that goes with any layers I might add on top without clashing, and darker colours seem so perfectly suited for cold days! As you can see in these pics it works with all the extra winter layers with jackets, scarves an cardigans well.


Dark Grey Tee In Outfits With Colourful Statement Pieces


6 ways to wear a dark grey tee with colourful pieces in your outfit | away from blue

Of course it's not just winter layers that this dark tee works with! If you have a dark tee it's a nice outfit base to pair with some other bright statement pieces, even in warmer weather. Like over a floral dress, with neon pink accessories, a yellow kimono, cobalt leather jacket or leopard print pants! This neutral tee is a nice grounding piece to add when you're wearing one or more bright statement pieces in your outfit.


Grey Tee With Red Pieces In An Outfit


5 red and grey v neck tee outfit ideas 30 wears | away from the blue

There are a few colour pairings I keep coming back to with this grey tee so I wanted to call them out specifically. Grey and red is a fun combination, and as you can see you can add little touches of red with accessories or go all out with a red cardigan or maxi skirt. Even burgundy and deep red shades, like those skinny jeans, work well with a dark grey tee.


Grey Tee Outfits With Green


3 ways to wear green pieces with a dark grey tee | awayfromblue

Green is a colour I've been trying to wear more lately and no matter the shade - olive or bright emerald green - I find it a little tricky to wear. Like any colour you're unsure how to wear, you can pair it with a plain grey tee! It just works!



Grey Tee and Skirt Outfits


4 outfit ideas with a dark grey tee and skirts | away from blue blog

This combination is another one I keep coming back to with this grey tee - pairing it with a printed skirt! Maxi skirts are obviously my favourite here, with 3 out of 4 outfits featuring it, but it works well with pencil skirts too and shorter length skirts like you've seen above.


Grey Tee and Baby Bump Outfits


4 grey tee and baby bump outfits | away from the blue

I've been lucky enough to have this tee for both my pregnancies with my boys and I took full advantage of the comfortable stretchy material, wearing it right into the third trimester! It was a simple outfit for work with a pencil skirt, or as you saw above too without the bump, a nice easy casual outfit on a hot day with a maxi skirt. It's one of those non-maternity pieces that work so well in a pregnancy wardrobe!

Colourful Spring Denim Outfits With White Kimonos and Navy Rebecca Minkoff Regan Bag

For today's Weekday Wear Link up, two colourful spring outfits with denim and kimonos - a frequently worn outfit combination of mine, especially in the warm weather as it's spring right now in Brisbane. However I didn't love both of these outfits equally.


What I wore:

white crochet kimono with printed cami and green skinny jeans navy rebecca minkoff regan bag | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with printed llama bag charm | away from blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | green skinny jeanas with crochet kimono printed cami navy bag in mangrove boardwalk


JacketShein lace trimmed crochet inset white kimono c/o
NecklaceRoie Designs feather, quartz and love charm long necklace
Cami: Jeanswest Audrey tonal print tank
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesNew Balance white and blue sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

I really liked the idea of this outfit when I planned it out in my head. The Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag is something I've frequently worn with these green jeans in the past, I like the two together. I thought this printed cami would be a fun addition, a top I hadn't worn in a while. And the white crochet detail kimono was a nice neutral block colour topper over all the print and colour.

We took advantage of the public holiday and headed out on another walk with the kids, through the mangrove boardwalk along the bay. It was a little breezy at home so I anticipated it being quite cool and windy walking along the shoreline, like previous visits, so I wore the jeans instead of shorts. This was a mistake and I was SO hot, there was oddly no breeze coming off the water and I really wished I hadn't worn jeans! Not the best outfit for the day, despite having liked it so much in the morning.





What I wore:

orange and black shorts and tee outfit with digital print kimono statement necklace converse spring style | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon with marigold orange tee and kimono | awayfromtheblue

Jacket: thrifted digital print no label kimono
Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace
Tee: Jeanswest essential v-neck tee in marigold
Shorts: Jeanswest Sara distressed hot short
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

In contrast to the outfit above, I did wonder a few times if I should have worn jeans instead of shorts! Spent the day with the kids and my mum at the beach, enjoying the sunshine although it was a bit windy and cool in the shade. Was so nice sitting on the sand in the sun though. Even Cooper went in for a paddle into the water and he's not normally a fan of getting wet!

As we didn't have a plan for the day in the morning I'd just picked something comfortable and colourful, with this marigold tee and digital print kimono. I was eager to wear this fun statement necklace again too, it's so light and easy to wear. I did like the black shorts to match the black print on the kimono too, even if I wished they were jeans a couple of times when I got cold! My Rebecca Minkoff navy Regan bag was great for carrying everything the boys and I needed, although it did end up a little full of sand at the end of the day!


How You Can Wear It:

Kimonos and denim is a style staple in spring! You can add some colour to an outfit with a bright tee, colourful jeans or a brightly patterned kimono itself.

Two Ways To Wear A Striped Tee In Spring

While I have quite a few striped tees in my wardrobe already, I couldn't go past this cream and black one at the opshop for just $1! I like the retro vibe with the narrow stripes and cream instead of white. like any striped tee, it's so easy to wear different ways in my wardrobe.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight navy with mustard cardigan | awayfromblue

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: thrifted blue statement beaded necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart black and cream stripe tee (new purchase)
Shorts: Jeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

A colourful outfit for the first wearing of this tee. I mentioned before I like the cardigan and shorts combination, even if the extremely warm start to spring meant I couldn't wear it as much as I liked! With the mustard cardigan, navy accessories and olive pull on shorts, this was a comfortable outfit perfect for working from home. And as I mentioned on Instagram, taking advantage of a break between meetings to go for a drive and swap with someone for the last Ooshie we needed for our collection.

When we caught up with my parents a few days later they gave me the last of the Ooshies they had...and now we have 3 of that little one I drove to get. Got too caught up in the "early ending of the promotion" panic! 😂 I'm glad we completed our set though, and the Ooshie craze is over (for this year!) now...


Last worn: mustard cardigan, navy necklace, olive embroidered shorts, Converse, navy Rebecca Minkoff micro Bedford bag. First time I've worn the tee as it was a recent purchase.

Tee: thrifted Kmart black and cream stripe tee
Skirt: thrifted Crossroads black ruffle hem maxi skirt
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagBalenciaga RH classic city in 2010 sorbet 

Why I wore it:

A slightly more monochromatic outfit this time, pairing the black and cream striped tee with the black Converse and the also thrifted black maxi skirt. The skirt was just $1 too! It was a wonderful spring day so I wanted to add a little more colour - pink accessories were perfect, with the pink marble and gold necklace and my sorbet pink Balenciaga city bag. Simple outfit for a busy morning - although it was my day off I had to dial in for a very important yet short meeting that morning while the kids watched PJ Masks to keep them quiet 😂

I picked the city bag instead of the baby bag to use for the day out with the kids, it easily holds all the water bottles and things you need to bring. I did forget to put tissues or wipes in my bag though. Which would have come in handy when my son stacked it on his bike and bled profusely all over the pavement. A lovely mum with her toddler (and fully stocked baby bag) having a picnic nearby offered us some baby wipes which was so helpful. Thankfully we didn't need to utilise the first aid kit in the car as my son felt better by the time we got back to the car park, and everything was easily cleaned up when we got home.



How You Can Wear It:

A striped tee is a staple wardrobe basic! It's easy to wear too. Keep things monochromatic by wearing pieces that match the stripes, or add more colour with bright layers. A striped tee is something that works well with shorts and skirts!

Weekday Wear Link Up! Stripe Tee Dresses, Converse, and Pink Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Two very similar outfits for today's Weekday Wear Linkup, even though I wore them a week apart! Pairing striped tee dresses with Converse, pink Rebecca Minkoff bags and statement necklaces for easy working from home and school run style.

What I wore:

Kmart white striped tee dress Converse Chucks neon pink mini MAc bag statement necklace thrifted style | awayfromblue

navy white striped tee dress  Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC | away from the blue

awayfromtheblue Instagram | working from home outfit stripe tee dress bold accessories statement necklace neon pink bag

Necklace: thrifted gold and cream multi strand pearl necklace (new purchase)
Dress: thrifted Kmart white and navy long sleeve stripe tee dress (new purchase)
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Was excited to wear this dress for the first time, and a slightly cooler spring day was the perfect opportunity! I'd just bought it at the opshop the week before for $1. The necklace was thrifted in the same trip for $2 as well and they work really nicely together. The Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag was a preloved eBay find at just $29.75 so that leaves the Converse shoes as the most expensive piece in my outfit! I bought them over a decade ago though so don't remember exactly how much they cost.

The striped dress was so stretchy and comfortable for a day of working from home and doing the school run - and it looked nice and presentable for a zoom call too!

Necklace: Jeanswest Taki necklace (c/o)
DressAtmos&Here navy stripe tee dress 
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

This navy striped tee dress is the reason I knew I had to buy the white striped tee dress! I really like this one and while it's a thicker fabric and so worn more on cooler days it's a firm favourite of mine. Really similar to the white one above too! Just a different hem and shorter sleeves, and of course a darker colour.

I accessorised this in a very similar way, with a pink Rebecca Minkoff bag, the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody this time, and another statement necklace. Again this was a work from home outfit, as well as doing the school run and taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. Another comfortable outfit for sitting at my desk all day working after running around dropping the kids to school.


How You Can Wear It:

A striped tee dress is a classic and comfortable option! For days with the kids, pick one with a longer hem like the white one in the first outfit, or a dipped hem at the back like the second one. Because stripes go with everything you can add some fun statement accessories like a bright pink bag or a layered necklace.
